New Jersey’s First Cannabis Culture Pop-Ups – Bringing Events to a New High. Inaugural event presented on December 20, 2018 in Livingston, NJ bringing people together to learn about Hemp-derived CBD for health, wellness, fitness, self-care, and caregiving. As the expansion of the cannabis culture continues to become more acceptable, both legally and socially, the more there will be a need to elevate one’s understanding of what’s safe and legally available. The founders, Robert Allen & Holli Ehrlich, want to enrich one’s life at a Canna Pop-Up event with an experience to remember.
Marijuana might not be legal in New Jersey YET, but everyone’s talking about the emerging cannabis market. Humans have used hemp, a variety of Cannabis sativa and a primary source of CBD, for more than 10,000 years in food, textiles and medicine. CBD oil, or cannabidiol, is just one of a variety of extracts found in the marijuana plant and it does not contain the intoxicating properties of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the compound in cannabis that gets people high.
In 2018 Robert Allen and Holli Ehrlich immersed themselves in the cannabis community learning about the legal, political, financial and medical issues surrounding this plant. They attended numerous monthly NJ/NY networking & educational meetings, panel discussions, and the NORML conference in Washington, DC. They met advocates, activists, doctors, nurses, pharmacologists, patients, politicians, lawyers, hundreds of lay people, entrepreneurs and professionals, people like you and me.
On Thursday, December 20, 2018, Robert & Holli created a relaxed, safe, fun environment at Studio355 in Livingston NJ for adults 21+ to learn about the power of CBD. A curated selection of high-quality brands sampled and sold innovative products and services including CBD essentials, accessories, wellness and beauty products. There was live music, CBD Yoga, infused food and beverages, body art, entertainment and giveaways. VIPs received a Swag Bag full of goodies from the sponsors, infused hors d’oeuvres, and exclusive discounts. Seniors and Veterans attended for free. A portion of proceeds were donated to the Epilepsy Foundation and Livingston Animal Shelter because CBD helps your pets too.
